're with us everybody. i'm jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. the concerns coming out with the release of the new gdp numbers. our commerce department says the economy grew at annual rate of 1.5% from april to june. americans spending at their slowest pace in a year. economists say growth at or below 2% is not enough to lower the unemployment rate. they do not expect growth to pick up much in the second half of the year either. let's talk about it with karl rove, former senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush. he is also a fox news contributor. karl, what do you make of these numbers? >> well not good, not good for the country and not good politically for the president. here's a look, jon, if you will, you remember the growth here, number in the second quarter is 1.5%. for the year it is estimated to be 2% though i suspect a lot of people will be lowering their estimates now that we've had 1.5% in the second quarter and 2% in the first quarter. but here's what looked like in previous reelections. when president bush ran for re-election it was 2.6% in the second quarte

'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. what duo your country? be big debate nationwide because president obama is putting forth affluent americans owe the country more than they are giving. last night the president said this about business people. >> if you have got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. the internet didn't get invented on its own. government research created the internet. so then all the companies could make money off the internet. >> bill: apparently the president believes that the federal government should take more in taxes from wealthy americans and business owners because the feds make individual success possible. that of course, is some outrage. here is my take. no man is an island. everybody needs help to develop their potential, that's true. however, individual achievement is just that. barack obama did not help me develop the factor. no federal agency helped me go to college. i paid my own way. i painted houses. federal government, nothing to do with it didn't give me the paint. didn't give me the brush. didn't help me up the ladder. yes,
